The government's plans for voluntary identity cards could pose problems for trans people, an activist group has said.

Gender Spectrum UK has launched an online petition aimed at ensuring the safety of people "who present themselves in a manner which is not the same as the gender to which they were assigned at birth."

A petition on the Downing St website asks the government to consider trans concerns in draft guidelines for the national ID card. The public consultation on the guidelines ends this week.
